    Eurostar, London to Amsterdam - the first public train (VIDEO)

    Been a while since I posted one of my videos in here, so I hope you enjoy this one... London to Brussels on this trip took an eye-wateringly quick 1h47m. (6 minutes late into Amsterdam thanks to an unfavourable regulation decision *right outside* the station!)

    No tail lamp displayed - serious?

    Not making the location or TOC public here, but this just happened: I just witnessed an EMU depart a station with no tail lamp - that is, no red light displayed on the rear of the train, and instead its white lights were lit at the rear. This train terminates at this station and has a short...

    0813 Milton Keynes - East Croydon Off Peak

    NRE and all ticketing sites suggest this train can be travelled on with an Off Peak Day Travelcard. The restriction, C0, suggests this train is not valid to arrive into Kensington Olympia before 0950. Barrier staff have refused me access based on the restriction and not taken into account...
